time

 

We can spend it

But we cannot buy it

 

Tick Tock

 

We don’t want it when we have it

And we don’t have it when we want it

 

Tick Tock

 

It flies without wings

It has no end and no beginning

 

Tick Tock

 

And we waste time on useless things

We try to be cool, to be rich, to be pretty

 

Tick Tock

 

But none of that matters

In the end, is it important?

 

Tick Tock

 

Shall we bury you with your money?

Write, “was very cool” on your tombstone?

How pretty will you be in your grave?

 

Tick Tock

 

No one will remember that

They will remember the things you did

The differences you made

 

Tick Tock

 

Then make a difference!

The clock is ticking.

 

Tick Tock
